Darwin Correspondence Project

BBC: Darwin's letters archived on web

… The Darwin Correspondence project has existed offline since 1974. It has so far published 15 volumes of the scientist's letters as books.

An agreement with the publisher of the books means the new website will offer digitised versions of the texts freely available to anyone four years behind the hard copies.

Yet more fantastic news about Darwin material going online.

I've been linking to various letters on the Darwin Correspondence website over the last few weeks, but this is a major launch of new material, including the letters from Volume 1 of the correspondence (previously missing from the website), which includes all Darwin's letters from the Beagle voyage. And they've even introduced some RSS feeds. Woot!

Unfortunately, the relaunch also involved relocating the material to a brand new domain, which means all my earlier links are now broken. I'll fix them as soon as I can.

Missing links on a Darwinian weblog, eh? Oh the irony!

Postscript: Missing links now fixed.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
